Can someone explain mine? At work and don't have time to figure it out... Thx.
Link of the news.
In russian, but you can understand the screenshots(the last one is important), pool of 4 pairs=Octad, pair=dyad on them.
The important part in the text is the 5 last lines (2 pairs out = RT wont help, damon's case ; 1 pair out = RT will enable it, qafa's case), you can try www.translate.ru to translate them if you dont understand.
In your case, Necroscope,
7 = 1 + 2 + 4 so you have 3 Dyads OK in Octad0
b = 1 + 2 + 8 and 3 more Dyads OK in Octad1
6 Dyads are OK, not 7, so according to the news, RT wont help you.
oh and btw...by what has been said by allbon, some of the NU's (as mine does , it seems ) have only one pair deactivated right??but doesn't that imply that then i have a card with 14 pipelines? or am i just being dumb?
That's how it works (written in my prev. post) :
All 6800 have 8 pairs of pipes, some of them deactivated (1 or 2 pair for 6800NU, none for 6800GT & U) if only one pair is deactivated, another one is always disabled by software (so you lose 4 pipes)
And Kill3r is absolutely right (next post), you need at least one F in your code.
That means that you need at least one F in your Code. Because there is no other way to get all four 1,2,4,8 hex-numbers( or whatever that is) Am I right?
My code is 0001370e X=7=1,2,4 y=e=2,4,8 3+3=6 ****....
ok....i think i got the idea...but then...what i have to pray for, is that my last pair (deactivated) is not spoiled, so that when RT turns the last 4 on, i won't be getting artifacts, since the 8 pairs are fine. right?
7 = 1+2+4 --> 3 pairs
11=1+2+8 --> 3 pairs
6 pairs OK => RT won't help for activating the other pipes.
Well I hope others will have more luck and thx allbon for the extra info.
[off-topic] folky és da madeira?hehe nice...sou de torres vedras...onde é q arranjaste a tua sparkle? pelos vistos tou com sorte...a ver se os pipes desactivados tao bons...isso é q era [/offtopic]
I agree. If you have one pair disable and one deactivated by software, then RT can only get you one pair back, right. This would give you 14 active pipes and not 16; or am I missing something?
hmmm...from what i understood, there are two possible scenarios: 1- u have a card with 2 pairs deactivated, end of story; 2- u have a card with one pair deactivated, and the other is forced to turn "off" as well (don't understand why). hence, when u turn the software deactivated one "ON", the other goes "ON" as well (beware, if this last one is not "good", it will probably cause artefacts). greets
EDIT: been dwelling on what i said here, and now i'm not sure this is true. can someone please correct/agree with what i said?
14 pipes cards dont exist.
1 Dyad hard-off (according to code)-> another 1 Dyad is soft-off automaticaly : you lose 2 Dyads, ie 4 pipes
then with RT :
1 Dyad soft-on -> the hard-off Dyad is autmaticaly turned on too : RT actually activates 1 Dyad, but you win a bonus one, so a total of 4 pipes.
Look at this screenshot :
(courtesy of Andrey Vorobiev)
the code is in the top 0000370f, and the Octad1 Dyad3 pair is turned off.
And look in the middle how F and 7 are calculated with the values in the Bit Field
has to have an F at least i see now.
If there's one thing you must know, it s here :
Only these combinations will give you 4 more pipes :
In your code 0000##Y#X
if (X,Y) =
hmm. my code is
so theoretically allbon my card should should be able to be softmodded to give the extra 4 pipes?
is there anything that could stop it from being softmodded? eg, were the pipes disabled my nvidia due to them being not fully working.
Hmmm, this is all getting a bit too 'geeky' for me but my card returns a value of 00011f0e, which means a final value of 7 (if I understood it correctly) so I presume my card could possibly be softmodded to 16 pipelines?
I'm not holding my breath or anything, but it would be nice to know if it works...
I'm not sure I understand. Why are the four last numbers in your list of working numbers simply reversed from the first four?
I have 00012f0e, does that mean it may work?
if someone could be so kind and give me an explanation about getting the code lines u are talking about? I really don' t know how getting them sorry. I've tried dos comline.and the comline you get over start (usually to enter the reg). But i am always getting errors when i try to. I'd really be thankful for someone explaining me in a few quick steps how to get this information bout my 6800. Thanks a lot.

Simply click start>run
then enter cmd and run it.
then go to the folder with rivatuner.exe and type
make sure you are logged in as admin.
ok so i've managed to access the D: "line" in the dos command line. But I cannot enter rivatuner (D:\programs\rivatuner.exe) is where i've installed to. Pleease navigate me and thx for that. When I type D:\programs i get kicked back to D:
Big noob asking here thx for your helping.
